    Badgers & Friends S1E10 - John Chenal

    Badgers & Friends S1E10 - John Chenal

    Today we welcome John Chenal to the show. For those that don’t know John, he’s a huge reason why Wisconsin is so highly respected when it comes to Runningbacks and a strong ground game. Lost behind the glory of every talented offensive line, lost behind the talent of the dynamic runningback is a fullback doing the dirty work, helping put those groups in position to succeed. A lot of what he does doesn't always show up in the box score, but that doesn’t make it any less important. John is one also happens to be the older brother of Leo Chenal, linebacker on the Badgers. We’re going to cover all of that.  My name is KJ Eichstaedt, we’re here with John Chenal, and you are listening to the IKE Badgers Podcast.
